Ronald N. Zuckermann

Ronald Zuckermann is a Sr. Scientist and Facility Director of the Biological Nanostructures Facility at the Molecular Foundry at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He invented an emerging class of biomimetic polymers called “peptoids”, and works on folding them into precise nanoscale architectures. He aims to understand and extract design principles from structural biology and apply them to the world of materials science to create new kinds of protein-mimetic nanomaterials.
